What makes a Luther education different?
Timeless Principles, Timely Approaches
We want our students to learn to think critically. So we emphasize learning about a variety of subjects, analyzing new perspectives, and synthesizing different areas of study. A Luther liberal arts education will not only prepare you for your future career but will also help you become a responsible global citizen who lives with purpose and leads with courage. Find out more about our curriculum that provides a lifetime of impact.
Luther’s faculty are recognized experts in their field and committed to teaching our students. Because of our 11:1 student-to-faculty ratio, you will receive individual attention from your professors. They will mentor you, act as advisers, and even conduct research in collaboration with you. Get to know our faculty.
At Luther, learning happens in the classroom and beyond—from our innovative facilities to the surrounding area. That’s why we emphasize interdisciplinary learning, in which students create collaborative projects. We also encourage students to do research and discover new knowledge. Every student completes a capstone or “senior project” in their major.
